A note from Mrs. Barnes…
Love and Logic describes three parenting styles that are typically used when raising children. Here are the three styles and a description of each. Which “style” do you typically use?
The Consultant: This Love and Logic parent provides guidance and consultant services for children.
The Helicopter: This parent hovers over children and rescues them from the hostile world in which they live.
The Drill Sergeant: This parent commands and directs the lives of children.
The next few “Counselor’s Corners” will address how these styles of parenting are used with children.
